world that it is more dangerous to be america's friend than it is to be our enemy. and i fear very much that in the age of obama that's proving to be true. now, the president's approach to nuclear disarmament which he also unveiled this week confirms the naivity of his views about america's enemies. until this week, any enemy of our country that might be contemplating a chemical, biological or large scale conventional attack against us knew they might face the worst in return, a nuclear response. we have now surrendered that powerful deterent. the new strategy prevents america from building any more nuclear weapons or using our nuclear deterrents to defend our allies against a massive conventional attack. apparently the president believes that if america stops its weapons production program the iranians and the north koreans will follow suit. [laughter] and while the president works to limit america's freedom of action, the iranian mullas are making steady progress toward acquiring a nuclear weapon. the president likes to say he's doing everything possible to prevent that from happening

, america pauses to remember the 168 lives lost in the worst act of domestic terrorism in u.s. history. now 15 years after the oklahoma city bombing, there's growing concern about a new wave of anti-government hatred like the kind that drove timothy mcveigh to mass murder. is it putting the safety of president obama at risk? perhaps the safety of all americans? i talked about the threat then and now with the man who was president at the time of the oklahoma tragedy, bill clinton. >> the other difference that the internet has exploded over these 15 years, there's a democratic president now, you were a democratic president then. but the other big difference is there's an african-american president. >> yes. and an african-american president whose father was from kenya and his mother's second husband was a muslim. and so he's had all these attacks from the birthers and others. i do think -- and he's had a lot of threats and also the members of congress have had a lot of threats against them. we had a lot of threats. i remember when that guy came from colorado and opened fire on the white house.

of the challenges that we face internationally can't be solved by one nation alone. but i do think that america's leadership is important, in order to get issues on the international agenda, and to move in concert with other countries, to have an effective response. there are a host of other issues, obviously that have to be addressed. and one of the points that was made during the communique' is we're talking here about the instruments of potential war or terrorism. but obviously they're also the reasons, the rationales, the excuses for conflict that have to be addressed as well. and i remain committed to being a partner with countries around the world and in particular hot spots around the world. to see if we can reduce those tensions and ultimately resolve those conflicts. and the middle east would be a prime example. i think that the need for peace between the israelis and palestinians in the arab states, that remains as critical as ever. it is a very hard thing to do. and i know that even if we are applying all of our political capital to that issue, the israeli people through their govern

of a republican resurgence in america. >> sold and obviously bought as a moderate, bob mcdonnell effectively ran away from his super conservative religious right origins. yes, his graduate school thesis as he did as an adult at the university did suggest that women having jobs was something that was detrimental to the family. he also wrote that government policy should favor married couples over and i quote, cohabitate cohabitaters, homosexuals, or fornicators. now bob mcdonnell is in his 40s and he's mainstream. worry not, virginia, worry not, america. bob mcdonnell is a small government, low taxes constitution lover. he is the republican resurgence. except it is not working out that way. tonight we can report that governor bob mcdonnell is stepping back from a third rally right-wing policy position that he's taken as governor. in response to a very negative public reaction. governor mcdonnell keeps trying this stuff over and over and over again, then he gets national attention and has to dial it back and pretend he didn't mean it in the first place. last night we recorded on governor mcdonnell

. and one of them is i think there's a perception in the west and certainly in america that, you know, americans would be very surprised to find that iran has an extremely vibrant, diverse art community and one of the real strong sense of the exchange program has been around the arts and photography, et cetera. and it plays into something that another area, which is that religious exchanges are person-to-person contacting in those areas, and i know you have some experience writing about it and working in some of those areas. i wonder if you could speak to the religious aspect? and in particular you talk about civil society something as a broader issue. >> that's an interesting question, and, you know, again because iran is such a difficult country to understand, i mean, that's why it's so interesting, so dynamic, i think that americans tend to either view iran as a really religious traditional society, or as a secular one. and that somehow they don't understand that it's much more complicated than that. but i think, you know, as part of that it's -- years ago for example, even as rece
